A British security firm has fired two staffers who were put in charge of placing a monitoring bracelet on the leg of a suspect under curfew on drug, traffic and weapons charges. The man was later spotted out on the town, but according to the monitor, he was home. Turns out he’d fooled the two by putting bandages over his prosthetic leg and getting them to attach the monitor to that. After they left, he simply removed his leg and went out while the leg stayed home.
- Prosecutors say he doesn’t have a leg to stand on… which is only partially true.
- His lawyer claims his client shouldn’t be held accountable because he’s “unbalanced”.
- When they attempted to arrest the man, police said he “fled on foot”. Literally.
